About Alisa Esh

Jake and Becky and their nine children live about half an hour away from this house. We built our cape-cod home in 1990 and lived their until the fall of 2009 when we moved to Honey Brook for mission purposes. Our home is built on an acre of the family farm. The farm, still in the family, is owned by Jake's youngest brother and borders the back of the yard. Jake's parents live next door and maintain a lot of the home and it's grounds. Our favorite part of this home is the safe and peaceful neighborhood surrounded by Amish homes and farmland.

Guestbook comments from the owner

What a wonderful vacation we had at your guest house! Thanks so much for sharing it with our family of #11 plus one on the way. The house and yard were fully adequate. We enjoyed the tether ball, butterfly garden, sandbox, campfire, and climbing tree in the backyard. Couples enjoyed the swing on the front porch. This location is great! I hope to return.



God really blessed us through you and your family. One of our families went to the "Joseph" show. I have seen it twice. Steve has seen it once.



May God continue to wonderfully bless you and your family,
Aug 2010

Our Wonderful Family Vacation

  • 5 of 5

We REALLY enjoyed staying at Harvest Dr. Guest House! (July 7-14th, 2017 ) We all love the Lancaster area, but this was even better then we could have imagined! I wrote in the back of the guest book, but wanted to share w/others about this beautiful home. Sitting on the front porch & seeing all the rolling hills w/farms was a real treat! (& hearing the clip, clop of the horses' hooves as the buggies drove by.) Our 2 sons & wives came too, & 6 children total, ranging from 3 to 13 yrs old. There were things to keep us all busy--many toys, games or books in basement, the large backyard, & the lovely home in general. Plenty of beds & bathrms for everyone! The large table w/many extra leaves was so cozy as our family sat for meals. One nite we used the fire pit & made s'mores & it was so relaxing!! Of course there are many things to do in that area too--we drove to Hershey Park one day, & also ate at Millers. Also the girls shopped a short while at the Outlets. We hope to go back sometime, as everyone really liked it there.(PS--we loved the scripture verses on the walls too!) May God bless you as you share your nice home! Norma & Allan Giordano ( from SC.) (Norma grew up on farms in MD & PA --York area, so this was like coming home)

Perfect property for our family

  • 4 of 5

We were very impressed with the size and layout of the house and yard. Having 7 children from ages 1 to 13 in our extended family stay worked very well for us in the play areas within the house and the toys/activities available to them/us. The backyard was wonderful as well with the sandbox where the younger ones had a great time, and the tether ball pole had the older ones and adults really entertained. The swing set was fun as well.

We had a wonderful evening of grilling out plus enjoying s'mores around the campfire at the fire ring.

Each daughter's family had their own sleeping areas as well as grandparents and an aunt. Was pleased that their were two bedrooms on the main floor.

Beautiful and peaceful location really allowed us to relax and refresh.

Also was the first time the whole family (13 of us) fit around one table for meals together!

Perfect for space

  • 5 of 5

We loved the space that the house provided...All of us were able to sleep comfortably & there was enough room for us to come together to watch a movie. Thank you for immediately fixing our DVD problem. The owners are so kind & friendly. The yard was well maintained. The only thing I think that could be better maintained is the little sand box out back. But all in all, i would definitely stay here again. Its not too far from the stores or activities. When you are here, you actually feel like you are home.

Relaxing week in the scenic Amish countryside!

  • 4 of 5

Having stayed in this same home previously, we were confident we'd have another great week. We were not let down. The huge backyard is great for kids to run and play as well as for a family cookout. Having a large family in the area, that was a blessing to get many of them together in one setting. The house was comfortable and well appointed. only a few minor things needed maintenance attention. Additionally, more recycle containers are necessary to accommodate 15 people, specifically in the heat of summer when a lot of liquids are consumed. Nonetheless, we totally enjoyed the week with our 3 kids, their spouses, and 8 grandchildren all making the trip from Florida.
